Amrok’s centering dovetail vise (CDV), available from Advanced Machine & Engineering, enables on-center mounting, between-center mounting, T-slot mounting, and Bridgeport mounting without the need for an additional subplate for tombstone mounting. The system is designed to locate and mount on a 2(50.8-mm) grid system.

The system features a centering accuracy of 0.001" (0.025 mm) using Amrok’s locating pins. The vise is available in sizes from 3" to 23" (76 to 584 mm) in length and in clamping widths up to 5" (127 mm) to enable a range of workholding applications.

For aerospace and special applications, the vises can be mounted end-to-end for workpieces longer than 23". With working jaw heights in sizes of 0.125", 0.250" and 0.375"  (3.175, 6.35, 9.53 mm), the CDV design allows for increased clamping force and load dispersion in harsh, high-torque cutting environments.

For most machining environments, the hard-anodized aluminum CDV is adequate; but for demanding, hard-metal machining, a 4340 alloy steel (RC-32-36) vise is available.
